The memorial Copper complex - the cemetery of the Soviet fighters, but not shot Polish officers


The memorial Copper complex - the cemetery of the Soviet fighters, but not shot Polish officers
The Tver scientists have found out that in the territory of a memorial "Copper" Poles are buried not "killed with People's Commissariat for Internal Affairs", and fighters of the Red Army Against the background of the russophobia continuing to gain steam in the European media were put to use old myths, from Katyn where allegedly People's Commissariat for Internal Affairs has destroyed tens of thousands of Polish officers, to an aviakatastofa near Smolensk in which the president of Poland Lech Kaczyñski has died. The Russian scientists have carried out "a round table" in the Tver region where the facts exposing one of the main myths of the Katyn tragedy have been read. But these facts will hardly get to the European media – as well as conclusions of the Russian-Polish commission which at the beginning of September once again will examine details of the presidential Tu-154 which has crashed in 2012 near Smolensk As the official representative of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation Svetlana Petrenko has reported to media, from Poland the request for carrying out procedural actions in Russia of SK has arrived has satisfied inquiry. Additional survey of units and structural elements of the plane is planned for the period from September 3 to September 7 this year. Survey will take place in presence of the Polish representatives. According to the IC RF, results of investigative actions will be transferred to the Polish side. It is easy to predict reaction, unfortunately: that hasn't shown a research, the European media almost for certain will accuse our investigation of "falsification of remains". Meanwhile, in the Tver region scientists and local historians have exposed one of the main myths about the Katyn tragedy concerning the memorial Copper complex which Poles consider "the place of mass punishment of People's Commissariat for Internal Affairs over 6311 Polish officers". As local mass media report, at the excavation which was carried out in the nineties the last century of any mass burials which could be identified as Polish it wasn't revealed. At researches of 1991 on big femurs extraction of remains of 243 people, plus 12 skulls with bullet openings has been counted. In researches of 1996 the Russian side in general didn't accept participation. Everything was done by Poles, and results of their work are inaccessible for general Russian public. Nevertheless, the number of nameplates (6311) on the Polish part of a memorial doesn't correspond to quantity of the exhumed remains at all that, is obvious, inadmissible in questions of perpetuating of memory of the dead. — the Tverskaya edition tells week. The version of execution of Poles of People's Commissariat for Internal Affairs is opposed also by local local historians. According to them, historical data of times of the beginning of the Great Patriotic War (time of occupation of the Tver region), can give fat up as a bad job the bases of creation of a memorial "Copper". In those places heavy fighting with the fascists breaking to Torzhok was going. Many fighters of the Red Army who were presumably buried in the territory of dachas of People's Commissariat for Internal Affairs. Plus in vicinities perished the field hospital where many fighters also died of wounds was located. These data and scientists-historians confirm.
— the manager of research department of the All-Russian historical and ethnographic museum (Torzhok) Valery Tsykov has told. Е
